SW 19 Wrap: Muguruza Spoils Vee’s Party & Federer as Non-Religious Experience

18Jul

We've got the Wimbledon blues after Venus couldn't get it done in the final against Muguruza. But, we're here to give full credit to Garbine & Roger for their outstanding fortnights at SW19. When one of the "Big Four" win a Slam, a lot of false narratives pop up from various corners; we're here to debunk a few of those. We also welcome Karolina Pliskova to the WTA penthouse, launch our Hall of Fame, and finish with a holdover discussion of two TV shows we're currently watching.
